    Johnny Bench's second home run of the game, a three-run blast in the tenth, seemingly had put the Cubs to bed, but Chicago rallied for four runs in the bottom of the frame for the victory.

    The Northsiders loaded the bases. Billy Williams plated the first run on Cleo James' sacrifice fly, and Jim Hickman responded with his own three-run clout for the win.
